Pattern 1: Sensory Modulation Disorder Sensory Over-Responsivity. Individuals with sensory over-responsivity are more sensitive to sensory stimulation than most people. Their bodies feel sensation too easily or too intensely. They might feel as if they are being constantly bombarded with information.
Pattern 2: Sensory-Based Motor Disorder Postural Disorder. An individual with postural disorder has difficulty stabilizing his/her body during movement or at rest in order to meet the demands of the environment or of a motor task. When postural control is good, the person can reach, push, pull, etc. and has good resistance against force.
Postural Disorder is a type of Sensory Processing Disorder. A lot of research has been undertaken in the area of Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD). Sensory Processing disorders are the main area of clinical research within the field of Occupational Therapy.
In this article, we will discuss the first pattern of SPD: Sensory Modulation Disorder. When people think of SPD, the pattern that first comes to mind is usually Sensory Modulation Disorder. This pattern includes the subtypes (A) Sensory Over-Responsivity, (B) Sensory-Under Responsivity, and (C) Sensory Craving.
SPD Modulation Disorders: Sensory Over-Responsivity Posted on October 13, 2017 October 11, 2017 by STEPS for Kids As I shared in a previous post, Dr. Lucy Miller has identified six sub-types of SPD under the umbrella term of sensory processing disorder. In the next few posts, I want to discuss in detail the definition of each sub-type, the red ...
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is an inability to process information received through our senses for generating appropriate responses. The result of this is a decreased ability to respond to sensory information in order to behave in a meaningful & consistent way.
